        Agility makes it possible for organizations in today's complex and constantly changing environment to ensure their survival with rapid, innovative and creative responses. In this regard, the present study attempts to study main indicators of agility in Iran Power Development Organization (IPDO). Firstly, four main criterions referring to the literature selected include of “leveraging impact of people and information”, “cooperate to enhance competitiveness”, “enriching customer”, “mastering change and uncertainty”. Subsequently, by designing questionnaire and determining it’s content validity by academic members, intuitive data from IPDO experts has been collected. Then, reliability has been evaluated using Gous method for consistency examination of pairwise comparisons matrix. Finally data were analyzed using fuzzy multi-criteria decision making technique. The findings shows that “cooperate to enhance competitiveness” with the importance degree (0.301) is the most importance of the main criterion for selecting the more agile organizational unit. While in Iran Power Development Organization it has third priority. The main criteria “leveraging impact of people and information” with the importance degree (0.277), “mastering change and uncertainty” with the importance degree (0.238), “enriching customer” with the importance degree (0.184), were three next most important criterion in the selection of organizational units are more agile. The results point out that IPDO should be more focus on the priority of indicators affecting the agility to minimize the gap between current and desired situation. Manuscript Document
